My wife went to the market yesterda
The bike she took had an accident but luckily she wasn't injured
She however said the baby was not moving as usual
I rushed to bring her to hospital this morning
Doctor, I did not have any injury she said
Abruption of placenta happens when there is premature separation of the placenta that nourishes the baby from the womb

It can happen following injury/accident.
Unfortunately the woman was right, the placenta had separated, sadly the baby died.
They were devastated
Other things that can cause this separation includes high blood pressure, smoking, drug abuse etc.

Please if any pregnant woman has any form of physical trauma/accident, go to the hospital immediately, this may save the lives of both mother &/child.

1/ “Protect your pregnant patients. The first ones who need the masks are pregnant women. The first to avoid social contact should be pregnant women.”

- Dr. David Baud, expert on emerging infectious diseases and pregnancy @unil #COVID19 #pregnancy
2/ USA @CDCgov published in late June:

- 91,412 women of reproductive age with #COVID19

*Pregnant women were 50% more likely to end up in ICUs and 70% more likely to need ventilators, although they were no more likely to die
3/ Public Health Agency of Sweden published in July:
- Small study N=53 over 4 wks
- 13 #COVID19-infected pregnant women admitted to ICU

1/ Inspired by the work of @LashNolen and @DocElovitz yesterday, in addition to the ongoing work from @timesuphealthcare and some amazing nursing colleagues @iamn0tthe1 and @mclemoremr

I created a list called "Advancing Women's Health"…
#MedTwitter #BLM
2/ @DocElovitz wanted to help amplify #women and #BIPOC working in #ReproductiveHealth, #pregnancy, #WomensHealth, #MaternalMorbidity, #placenta, #PretermBirth, #Reproimmunolgy and #ReproductiveJustice

This is a start, and by no means a complete list, and will be ever evolving.
3/ As @LashNolen so eloquently stated in @NEJM:

"Our inaction will be especially harmful for patients with intersecting marginalized identities, such as women of color, who already bear the brunt of some of our most pressing health disparities"

We have much work to do...

1/ Q: What do we know about #COVID19 and #pregnancy?

A: The Nerdy Girls posted on this several weeks back, but we have some updates from recent research:(…)

Here are a few highlights:
👶 Pregnant women are no more likely to have high disease severity than than non-pregnant adults.

🩸We don't know if #COVID__19 crosses the placenta; the few studies on antibodies in infants produced unreliable results because the antibody test results were prone to error.
🤰Most newborns born to mothers with COVID-19 are negative for COVID-19.

🤱 Experts recommend feeding breast milk to infants if possible, even if the mother has COVID-19.

A #practical topic for today. #Pregnancy changes things - but more so for our #neurology patients - or not? #pearls from the #EAN2020 #MedEd #MedTwitter #MedStudentTwitter #neurologyresident @EANeurology @WNGtweets
Let’s first address #multiplesclerosis. Patients get better in third trimester and 30% relapse #postpartum. Immune responses shifts to anti-inflammatory in 3rd trimester to accommodate fetus - #etcomehome - but rebounds after birth. #MedEd #doubledoc #AcademicTwitter
Continue #firstlineinjectables #glatiramer and #interferon - these don’t cause #teratogenicity. In flares, consider IVIG and PLEX. How about #steroids? Usually fine except in 1st trimester when they can cause birth defects #MedEd #MedStudentTwitter #MedTwitter

Welcome to Fertility Friday

What is your own explanation of Infertility?

Please tweet your thoughts

@DrJohnAfam @DrZobo @aproko_doctor @ronikpe @TheTalkDoctor_ @AkindeCassandra

#May1st #staysafe #COVID19 #womenshealth #infertility
About 60% of couples will achieve pregnancy within one year of trying

About 80-85% of couples will achieve pregnancy within two years of trying

So what is Infertility?
@NaijaObgyn @aproko_doctor @healthertainer @DrZobo
#fertility #women #staysafe #COVID19 #babies #mothers
Infertility is the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of REGULAR unprotected sexual intercourse”-WHO

Regular☝️☝️here is at least 3-4 times a week

15-20% of couples experience infertility

Infertility can be primary or secondary

Starting a series on clinical Pearls I am gathering in #COVID19 patients based on experiences of many experts

Will add as we go along

Feel free to add your own observations/experiences

#covidclinicalpearls /1
Anosmia is likely the most specific #COVID19 related symptom
30% of patients have anosmia as their 1st symptom
#covidclinicalpearls /2
Around 90% of patients have fever.
50% maybe afebrile at the time of presentation
Fever tends to be very resistant to routine measures in hospitalized patients
There is no consensus that NSAIDs are to be avoided in #COVID2019 patients

Some observations from my #pregnancy so far (personal and not true for all). A never ending thread: 1) Your mother always seems to remember a “magical” pregnancy until you are definitely pregnant and then suddenly her memory serves up all the drama, hormones and heartburn.
2) Even though doctors nowadays seem to know a lot, there is still a surprising amount that they don’t. So if something is not as expected they will cross things off the list and at the end your options are A) the kid’s fine, B) the kid has alien DNA and MIB is coming.
3) Different countries have wildly different rules about pregnancy. In Greece sex is “not recommended” until the 16th week, in the UK they encourage exercise... 😂😂😂

1/7 @medsinpregnancy #pregnancy #postpartumdepression
So, the FDA approves Brexanolone for postpartum depression - a 60-hour continuous infusion at about $25K - with this accompanying picture 😡👇
I refuse to let this pass in silence...
2/7 @medsinpregnancy #pregnancy #postpartumdepression
Approval is based on two Pivotal phase III trials reported in Lancet comparing infusions of this drug to placebo in two populations of postpartum women with moderate and high HAM-D scores, respectively:
3/7 @medsinpregnancy #pregnancy #postpartumdepression
Effect after 60 hours clinically meaningful effect against placebo for high HAM-D baseline scores. After 7 days not all that impressive.
Y-axis: why not use actual changes in HAM-D instead of %-changes?
After a few weeks?

In #NewYork a woman can now have an #abortion at any anytime in her #pregnancy. Up to the 9th months

What's next? A law saying you can off you kid after birth

They do it to #babies that come out alive at abortion clinics

These people are pure evil! This pisses me off so much⬇
I want to make a video about abortion on my #YouTube channel but I can't get through finding clips without my eye's watering up. It breaks my heart. I'm a very strong man. I don't cry.

I have a soft spot for #kids. Them being hurt or #murdered eats at me. They are helpless.⬇
We have to stop the #DeepState. Abortion and #ChildTrafficking has to be stopped! This shit can't keep happening.

That is the main reason I'm in this fight. We have to fight for the #children because they can't #fight for themselves. It's on us to #protect them.⬇

How gender identity politics is endangering #WomensRights masquerading under the guise of “progressivism”- or in other words, as I said to this @notokyriarchy fatherfucker, an #MRA’s dream come true
- (thread)
I shouldn’t have to explain the realities of sex-based oppression in 2018! #Female is a biological sex. #Gender is the roles and norms that are imposed on those with female bodies to subjugate them to males for free sexual, domestic, and reproductive labor.
No matter how many genders a given culture had or recognized, somehow, the half of the group with a cock and balls (males) knew which other half of the group to forcibly impregnate (“#NonMen”, according to some). 🤔🤔🤔

We really need to talk more about #abortion as an option for women.
It's hard to say this and hard to hear it for many, but just because you discover you are pregnant doesn't mean you must carry that pregnancy to term. Your decision will last the rest of your life--and the rest of the life of any child you decide to carry to term.
And no, I am not advocating #abortion.
I'm advocating thinking about parenthood & all it entails.
Because once you have a child, you can't just walk away from that life.
And women/girls are talked into maintaining pregnancies every day.
More discussion would change that.

10-20% of pregnant women experience depression and/or anxiety during the perinatal period. (peri=around, natal=birth). #MaternalMHMatters #PerinatalMentalHealth
Maternal prenatal stress has been associated with a range of negative outcomes in the baby.. such as obstetric outcomes (e.g. preterm birth, low birth weight), emotional outcomes, behavioural outcomes and cognitive outcomes. Review:…
The biological basis for this is still poorly understood. More research is needed in this area to help identify early markers (as well as protective factors) and to help inform early interventions to ensure the best possible outcome for the mother and the baby.
